Mike Shel (not his real name) was born in Detroit, Michigan, and now lives in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he practices as a psychotherapist. After writing two adventures for Dungeon Magazine in the early 90s, he crawled down a deep, dark hole. He emerged 15 years later, Rip Van Winkle-like, looked around for a moment, then crawled back down again. Re-emerging after another 3 years, he rubbed the sleep from his eyes and began freelancing for Paizo Publishing and third-party publishers like Kobold Press and Legendary Games.
Mike is currently hard at work on his epic fantasy trilogy entitled Iconoclasts. The first book, Aching God, is scheduled for an April 9th, 2018 release. He's currently writing the second, Sin Eater, and the third, Idols Fall, is in vague outline form. Hooray for Mike! You should read these books when they are released because it would make Mike very happy.
